Let’s demystify the four pins:

  1. VCC (Power 3.3 – 6V): This pin is where the module gets its juice. It’s like plugging your device into an electrical outlet, but in the miniature world of electronics. The module can operate within a voltage range of 3.3 to 6 volts.
  2. GND (Ground): Think of this as the electrical equivalent of Earth’s gravitational pull—it keeps everything stable. It serves as a reference point for all the electrical action.
  3. TXD (Transmit Data): Data flows out of the module through this pin, like messages sent from your phone.
  4. RXD (Receive Data): This is where data enters the module, like receiving text messages.

Default Pairing Code: 1234 Default Baud Rate: 9600

Although the HC-05 is often associated with Arduino, it’s not exclusive to it. You can team it up with various microcontroller devices. Here’s a straightforward example of how to connect it to an Arduino:

So, if you’re eager to establish a wireless connection with your Arduino or other microcontrollers, the HC-05 is a fantastic choice. It’s like adding Bluetooth superpowers to your projects. What’s more, there’s a wealth of online tutorials that use this exact model, making it an extensively documented and reliable option.
